    I asked a girl out on a date and she said 'maybe'. I'll take that as a no, cut my losses and just move on right?

    You've twigged it. It means no, but she's too shy to say no. Move on.

    It doesn't always mean no - a woman who says maybe might just need some time to think about it! It's always awkward being put on the spot. Ask her again sometime and she's sure to give you a proper answer.

    I dunno, if she liked me she wouldn't have to think twice.

    I think it's a no anyway.

    It may mean maybe. How well do you know each other. Your job is to behave impeccably towards her ie polite, friendly, help her etc. to gain her trust. Whatever you do don't push things though. She'll panic and be frightened away. Lots of men don't realise that women can be easily alarmed by over enthusiasm from men they don't know, because they can't judge whether they're likely to get into deep water.

    Either:
    she actually means maybe, and will check her schedule,
    she is doing a really sh*tty job at being flirty,
    She means no but doesn't have the balls to say no.

    Of course it's a no. Girls are indecisive and "maybe" is just their way of worming out of an awkward situation. Move on, cut her loose and find another girl who actually respects you enough to give you a Yes or No answer like any decent person would.

    It's not quite that clear cut...

    I almost said "maybe" when my boyfriend asked me out, because I knew I was 17 and lived over an hour away from him, but he thought I was in my early 20s and lived locally. I thought I might be deceiving him and leading him on/wasting his time if I said yes without being honest about my age and where I lived.

    In the end, however, I decided that I fancied him too much to risk having him change his mind and I said "Yes".

    The point, however, is that there aren't always negative reasons why a girl might say "maybe". It doesn't always mean "no".
